Google Wave

So sad to see Google throw in the towel on Google Wave.

In retrospect the obvious is pretty clear - the way to get mass wave adoption was to build a really solid bridge between SMTP, IM, and Twitter/ostatus worlds.

Yes, I know people did build those all of those connections and more but the wave team was a fairly small team and they didn't focus on making any of those Google production ready which would have led to people coming to depend on them as a primary inbox type of application.

I still think the concept of a live, read/write, communicating web world is where we are headed.  Wave was definitely ahead of its time.

Long trip

The trip home was longer than normal. I was able to use public transport the whole way.

On the way home I walked past St. Bernard's church - it was the first day of the combined parish. The bells started ringing and the sky was pure blue on a warm summer day. Perfection!

Review -- I think this is a great way to surf at very low power.

Also - reading is immersive enough that I have gone through a couple of books on the thing.

Tap dancing in my PJs

My daughter insisted that I post this.  Not sure why but it's kind of amusing to me.
